At the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show in New Orleans, PDR Cigars unveiled a new premium offering line under its Flores y Rodriguez line. The Flores y Rodriguez Connecticut Valley Reserve Broadleaf Maduro is expected to hit retailers this Fall.
As the name indicates the cigar features a Broadleaf Maduro wrapper over a double binder of Ecuadorian Corojo and Habano from Nicaragua. The filler is mostly Nicaraguan as it features Criollo 98 from Condega. There is also a touch of Dominican Corojo in the blend. The cigar is being launched in four sizes – each in 15 count boxes.
Flores y Rodriguez gets its name from the two principals of PDR Cigars – Abraham Flores and Juan Rodriguez.
